Refuge addresses one of the U.S.’s most urgent problems: the lack of civil dialogue, or any dialogue, between our warring cultural factions. Doc NYC Jury

Chris is a husband and father, a veteran and, until recently, a leader in the KKK. He started hating Muslims when the planes hit the Twin Towers on 9/11, but is forced to confront his hate when he is connected to Muslim doctor and refugee, Heval. Refuge uncovers what is possible when we leave the security of our tribes and what is at stake for our country if we don’t. Where there is love, there is refuge. Subtitled.
